  1. 102 squadron 1918/1919

    I am trying to find info on this squadron and my wife's grandfather Hugh O'Donnell who was an AC2 169580. I have his Cert of Emplyment during the war and his medals in original boxes yet can find no trace of him in these records. A mystery and any help will be appreciated.

  10. Kathleen Rosina Huggins

    My aunt won the BEM in 1947. She kept the nature of the honour and why she received it secret until she died. It is thought it was something to do with Biggin Hill Aerodome. If any one can shed any lights on events at that time I would be very grateful
